    As close to perfect as it gets

    There is only one word to describe our experience at the Palomar…perfect. I have not one single complaint regarding our wedding. Erin was amazing she listened to our needs and came up with ideas and solutions to meet them. She emailed and communicated the whole time advising us on every step of the process. We decided we were going to get married in 62 days and Erin got right to work. The menu was amazing and the food was delicious! The package was amazing and every professional was just as amazing the florist, the DJ, the officiant, the cake was just amazing. Our guess loved the food, which for a wedding is hard but the food was amazing, the bartender made our entire night from creating custom drinks to keeping the alcohol flowing, the cake was so good, the DJ was spot on mixing just the right music and keeping the vibe going the whole night. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this place. I wish I could get married every year. Erin and her team at the Palomar took all the headache out the process. It was a one stop wedding shop. All we did was show up with a Photographer. Erin and her team took care of all the rest. Planning a wedding is tough and during a pandemic even worst but somehow Erin and her amazing team did it and in 62 days! Most importantly as a LGBTQ couple Erin made us feel welcomed and accepted she treated us with respect and every person and vendor also treated us with the up most respect. I couldn’t of asked for anything else.

Writing for Silver Sound DJs an endorsement for Hotel Palomar, I have had the experience of twice entertaining Hotel Palomar wedding receptions. This Hotel is very new and has a delightful modern style with a touch of the Art Deco style. The decorum and design is very sharp for a signature event, where you want to impress with very pleasant surroundings. The staff are friendly and helpful, they work in tandem towards a pleasing experience for the client and guests. I have also stayed at the Hotel as a guest, the Hotel rooms are of the highest quality, with super design and furnishings. I think this Hotel is one of Philadelphia's greatest secrets. I look forward to entertaining at the Hotel Palomar again. Paul Evans - President and Founder Silver Sound Entertainment.
